Motivation is the want to succeed and training in any area of your life is the how to? Typically what happens to your motivation is like your Starbucks Latte, you come out strong and soon the strong feeling turns to lukewarm and before you know the cup is cold and ready to be disposed. Your attitude is somewhat the same, so you have to keep refilling it over and over. Have you ever seen the movie, Miracle? It was the great gold medal hockey team of 1980, Miracle On Ice! I can remember watching it and hearing Herb Brooks who was a great motivational speaker say ‘ the legs feed the wolf” If you want to stay motivated then you need to fill your mind with thoughts that motivate, not the trash or crap that flies around your life, TV, office and other places you hang out. How can you stay motivated with a bunch of negative people who it seems like their only mission in life is to destroy your motivation. My big tip to you staying motivated is run from them, just like you should run from the evil side of life.
